Over 100 years ago, William Sutherland, an osteopathic physician, recognized a connection between the rhythmic movement of the fluid and membranes around the brain and spinal cord, as well as a corresponding rhythmic movement of the sacrum, with health and well being.
Using a highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes, cranial osteopaths can tune into this rhythm or PRM (Primary Respiratory Mechanism) to detect and correct strain and dysfunction. The name cranial simply refers to the fact that imbalances are corrected using gentle hand pressure focussing primarily on the relationship of the bones of the head as well as the movement of the sacrum between the pelvic bones and the movement of fluid around the brain and spinal cord.
Cranial osteopathy is a gentle approach to treatment and works to activate the innate ability of the body to heal itself. It is widely known for the treatment of newborn babies, infants, toddlers and children however it is equally effective for adults and the elderly.
